Notable among the buildings in this campus is the university’s Learning Resource Centre, a combined library and computer centre. There is also a substantial collection of halls of residence and student houses, and the University of Hertfordshire Students’ Union is headquartered at College Lane campus. The College Lane campus is also the location of Hertfordshire International College, which is part of the Navitas group, providing a direct pathway for international students to the University. The Hertfordshire Intensive Care & Emergency Simulation Centre is also located at College Lane. A brand new £40-m state of the art Science Building has recently opened at College Lane.
